Era of 'Video-Pope' Approaches

From Era of 'video-Pope' approaches:

"An enfeebled Pope John Paul II may be back at the Vatican, but his future public appearances may largely be limited to video-links, and doctors predict the days of thousands of pilgrims being able to see the pope 'live' may be coming to an end.

The 84-year-old pope, who left Rome's Gemelli hospital on Sunday 18 days after undergoing throat surgery, must now do and speak as little as possible to prevent another relapse, doctors said.
Some said the pontiff should even have stayed in hospital. "
